1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In large bowl, combine sugar and oil. Beat in eggs. Stir in molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

2. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until cookies spring back when touched lightly, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

3. In a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip cookies halfway into the melted chips or drizzle with mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper and let stand until set.
